@TerryCurley! I started out drawing but after following Terry's work, I just had to start painting. My other influences after I got started are Bob Ross of course, Ben Saber and Clive because of their tutorials. I don't spend much time looking at the old masters stuff but out of all of them so far, Monet has struck a chord in me. I want to recreate some of his work and also Thomas Kinkade. I love brilliant colors.

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.

My main influences are Wilson Bickford, Bob Ross, Gary Jenkins, and Stephan Bauman. All because of their tutorials and the work they produce. I love looking at the classics by Rembrandt and Monet, but I can't say they influence my work. Van Gogh however I have tried to do one of his paintings just because I thought I would be able to, but to be honest I'm not very fond of his work.

As a retired tattooist my influences were, in the UK Dave Ross like me a free hand tattooist from Colchester, fat bob in Ipswich both great tattooists for different reasons Dave was freehand ( nothing traced all original work, which is what I did) Bob was a great transfer artist, apart from tattooists, Archibald Thornburn OMG the greatest animal painter of all time, or Russel Flint the greatest water colour, pencil artist to have ever lived .
